Vicious Circle is very happy to announce the arrival on the label of the pharaonic project La Colonie de Vacances, for a first album to come in early 2022!
La Colonie de Vacances originally began as a live experiment in 2010. In the grounds of Tours' Castle, for the Festival Rayons Frais, four cult names from the French underground set up on opposite sides of the courtyard. Papier Tigre, Marvin, Pneu and Electric Electric had shared many concert-bills over the years, but never at the same time. What resulted was so successful and caused such a buzz across the French live scene, that more than a decade later the entity now known as La Colonie De Vacances has become one of the most innovative, celebrated and mind-blowing live experiences on the French (or any other) music circuit. A truly original, exhilarating, roaring musical hydra.
The highly anticipated first La Colonie de Vacances album is scheduled for early 2022 on Vicious Circle.
A French tour is already planned from February 2022.
